Guided reading activities

Overall rating 4 out of 54.5 (85 ratings)

Last updated 15 April 2014, created 24 October 2008, viewed 165,695

These activities are designed to be completed by students while the teacher is listening to other students read. There are three different grids, each with nine activities. Every student completes the central activity and then chooses two other activities to make a line like in noughts and crosse More…s. All the activities are based on the guided reading text that the students are reading. The files are presented as either a word document (one grid per page) or as publisher file (two grids per page). They have been designed for year two and over. Hope they are useful!

Thanks for your well organised grid of choices- always glad of a new view on an old teaching strategy. Looking forward to putting them into action.

Thanks so much for this - I was struggling to work out what to do when my year 7s violently disagreed on the book that they wanted to do next - now we will do both books at the same time using this resource! I'm very grateful. I will be adapting some of the activities to make it clear exactly what is expected (word count wise) because they will be lazy otherwise...
